Emo The Musical - fun and cheesy Aussie musical without autotune. The film has a lot of heart and was just really nice. Would definitely watch this one again.
Paddleton - I watched this in two goes. First time I gave up after 20 minutes because I didn't like the direction. There were lots of shots of nothing which isn't something I dislike inherently but it wasn't working for me here. The concept of the movie is that one of the dudes was going to die of cancer and his decision to end his own life before it got really bad was very decisive so having these shots, which felt like they were giving the audience time to mull this over seemed at odds with that choice and the power he took from making it. That almost completely stops after the first 20 minutes though and in the end it is a very touching movie that doesn't have any cheap or goofy moments. Mark Duplass and Ray Romano both seem like actors certain people would have a very low tolerance for but I like them and thought they both put in great performances here.
Climax - French movie about a bunch of dancers that have their Sangria spiked at a rehearsal and shit gets wild. I loved it. Split into two halfs, the first has a couple of really amazing dance scenes, mixed with a very dialogue heavy scene where we get to learn a lot about the various characters. Then the second half (introduced by a kind of second title sequence which was interesting) is the result of the spiked booze. It's a very interesting movie, the one major scene that features dialogue has these weird, heavy cuts where the screen will flick black, then go to the next set of characters. Then after the half way point the movie is presented as a single take while the camera follows the various characters around. It's pretty fucked up in a couple of parts but nothing too crazy. Sofia Boutella does most of the heavy lifting with the acting in the second half as she wanders round, drugged out, scared and confused. I'd only seem her in The Mummy before this so was really impressed.
